International Youth Day 2016

The International Youth Day is a unique opportunity to celebrate young peoples’ views and initiatives, recognizing their efforts to create a better world for everyone. This year the topic proposed by the United Nations is “The Road to 2030: Eradicating Poverty and Achieving Sustainable Production and Consumption.”

In this ocassion, we invited youth from different countries to reflect about their role in eradicating poverty and share it with us by creating a v-log that answers the question: What is the role of youth in promoting behaviors and actions that can contribute to sustainable consumption and help alleviating poverty? What concrete actions can youth take?

We invite you to read some of their quotes in the folowing maps, and watch their videos below.
